    Why is Vital Choice wild Alaskan Sockeye so clearly superior?

    The relationships we fostered during decades of fishing Alaskan waters give us rare access to the very finest Sockeye, from smaller harvest regions ("fisheries") that host fewer boats and faster processing.

    This means that Vital Choice Sockeye is cleaned and flash-frozen very quickly after harvest, preserving its fresh-caught quality perfectly. In addition, fat levels in Sockeye vary by region, and on average ours features substantially more flavor and omega-3 nutrition than standard Sockeye.

    These advantages explain why salmon-savvy shoppers consider Vital Choice wild Alaskan Sockeye such a rare treat.

    Sockeye vs. King and Silver salmon

    Wild Alaskan Sockeye is richer than our Silver (Coho) salmon and a bit leaner than our King (Chinook) salmon, with a firmer texture than either fish.

    Sockeye salmon nutrition

    In addition to ample protein, Alaskan Sockeye salmon offers abundant omega-3s, as well as unrivaled levels of vitamin D and astaxanthin (as-tuh-zan-thin), a carotenoid-class red-orange pigment with rare antioxidant power.

    On average, Sockeye salmon provides these amounts of nutrients per 6 oz portion:

    • Omega-3s – About 1,994mg of omega-3 EPA+DHA, or 4 to 8 times more than the minimum daily EPA+DHA intake recommended by most world health authorities (250-500mg)).
    • Vitamin D3 – About 1,170 IU in the optimal D3 form, which is more than most other fish, and more than any fortified food, approaching the child-to-adult US RDA of 600 IU.
    • Astaxanthin – About 6.78 mg*. This red-orange pigment is a carotenoid-class nutrient with unique health benefits.

    "Still my favorite" Toshiko Stone on 10/04/2017 14:33 Review: I have been purchasing this Tataki several times and I still enjoy the freshness and good taste.

    "Not the sashimi I expected" Robin Diane on 09/07/2017 09:41 Review: It wasn't sashimi, so much as seared salman. Needed sauce due to mild flavor. If you're looking for a usual sashimi experience, this is not it. Hello Robin, Thank you for your feedback. Our Customer Service Team will be reaching out to you shortly to discuss your recent order.

    "Delicious Tataki-Style Salmon!" Patti K on 07/10/2017 07:37 Review: Perfection! Very happy with my purchase and with Vital Choice. Have been a customer for many years.

  • Serving/Care

    Storage

    Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months. Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).

    NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.

    Thawing instructions

    Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging.

    For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture package). Prior to cooking, do not allow fish to reach temperatures above 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius).

    Cooking and serving tips

    • Rinse fish quickly in cold, clean water.
    • Serve on top of mixed greens.
    • Warm and serve with stir-fried veggies and rice or noodles.
    • Slice and serve sashimi-style on rice, with pickled ginger, soy sauce, and wasabi on the side.
    • Cook the loins further, slice, and serve as you would our regular Sockeye portion.
    • Note: It's perfectly safe and healthful to serve our Tataki "as is", because flash-freezing has rendered the Sockeye Salmon 100% sushi-safe.
